First look Photo: New Lens, Last Chance

October 11, 2017

I was hoping to get a 300 mm lens before the egrets left for the season, and it looks like I got that chance.
This is a morning shot of a great egret hunting for food.

There’s no doubt great egrets are beautiful, but with a wingspan of 1.7 meters they look even more amazing.

Photo Friday: White Breasted Nuthatch

June 30, 2017

These birds are small, and members of the woodpecker family.  usually they don’t let me get so close, but this one was as curious about me, as I was about it.

First Look Photo: Lady and the Vine

I don’t usually see ladybugs this early in the Summer, but I saw this one on my way home from work.  I just love the red wings, and white head.

June 7, 2017

Sometimes the best pictures happen right after a rain storm, so don’t put away the camera when it rains.

Photo Friday: What a Loon

April 7, 2017

Loons spend the Winter in the bays, and coast line, and move to lakes and rivers for nesting during the Spring.  I caught this one right before it moved out of Casco Bay for its fresh water home.

Photo Friday: Dramatic Cloud Formations

March 24, 2017

I think I’ve said it before, but I love cloud formations.  In a recent unit in my school they talked about stockpiling images of clouds for use as backgrounds of architecture photography, if the sky is uneventful.  This is what today’s shot is for.

First Look Photo: The Odd Duck

March 22, 2017

I found this white duck among other ducks yesterday.  I thought it was just another type of duck, but the closer I looked at the markings, especially on the head, and after looking at my book, I realized it was a white female mallard duck.  It’s a rare sighting to be sure, but albinos happen in most species, and it’s still fun to see.

Photo Friday: No Egrets

September 9, 2016

If I were to have any regrets about my photography, it would be not having my camera at a great photo moment.  To be honest, those times have happened in the past.

Today’s shot was one I was definitely ready for.  I was on my way home, from work, when I saw a snowy egret hunting for fish.  I loved the way the ripples in the water’s current played around its feet.
